TITLE: Sympathy for the Devil
Lyrics and Chords

Please allow me to introduce myself
I'm a man of wealth and taste
I've been around for a long, long year
Stole many a man's soul and faith

/ E D / A E / :

And I was 'round when Jesus Christ
Had His moment of doubt and pain
Made damn sure that Pilate
Washed his hands and sealed His fate

Pleased to meet you, hope you guess my name
But what's puzzling you is the nature of my game

/ B7 - E Esus4E / /

Stuck around St. Petersburg
When I saw it was a time for a change
Killed the Czar and his ministers
Anastasia screamed in vain
I rode a tank, held a general's rank
When the Blitzkrieg raged and the bodies stank


I watched with glee while your kings and queens
   Ooh ooh, ooh ooh
Fought for ten decades for the Gods they made
   Ooh ooh, ooh ooh
I shouted out, who killed the Kennedys
   Ooh ooh, ooh ooh
When after all, it was you and me
   Ooh ooh, ooh ooh

{Ooh ooh's continue throughout}

Let me please introduce myself
I'm a man of wealth and taste
And I lay traps for troubadours
Who get killed before they reached Bombay


Oh yeah, get down, hit it

{Refrain with confusing}

Just as every cop is a criminal
And all the sinners saints
As heads is tails, just call me Lucifer
'Cause I'm in need of some restraint

So if you meet me, have some courtesy
Have some sympathy, and some taste
Use all your well learned politesse
Or I'll lay your soul to waste, mm yeah

{Refrain with puzzling}

Mm mean it, get down

Tell me baby, what's my name
Tell me honey, can you guess my name
Tell me baby, what's my name
I tell you one time, you're to blame

Ooh hoo, ooh hoo, ooh hoo, all right
What's my name
Tell me, baby, what's my name
Tell me, sweetie, what's my name
Ooh hoo, ooh hoo, ooh hoo, all right
